'Ello, and thank you in advance for any help you guys can offer! I've been looking through this website, and have found some good leads on what GPU to get based on the 300w PSU I have, but then alas, I find that the GPU isn't low profile, or I find a low profile GPU, and the PSU required on the box is 400w+, which would be fine, except the case is extremely small, and I haven't found any PSUs for 400w made for such a small case. Yet! Now I'm a bit stuck on what I 'can' get due to my PSU (300w), along with the low profile size requirement of the GPU to be installed.
My specs are: OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Version: 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 System Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard System Model: s5-1014 System Type: x64-based PC Processor Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5800 @ 3.20GHz, 3203 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB Graphics Card: Nvidia GT 520 2 GB DDR2 Power Supply: Seasonic 300w 80+ Certified 18A 12v1+2
Misc specs (Size requirements, etc): Mobo: H-I41-uATX (Eton/EtonL) ( microATX ) - 9.6 x 9.6 inches Space available around the PCI-E x16 slot measured at 3.5 x 3.2 x 7.2
This GPU will be used mostly for gaming (Skyrim, Saints Row 3, L.A. Noire, APB etc) and 3D modeling for work, and very little else. I do know there are quite a lot of limitations to my choices due to the slimline case/PSU, but I thought I'd ask around, in case I was missing/overlooking anything.
Resolution desired would be 1600x900 I don't believe I will be OC'ing anything, unless required.
Now for the cards! I'm not in any way the best with this stuff, these are just a few possible cards I've found.
